A Beautiful Bracelet From Your Leftover Beads; A Book Purse;Grandson's Teddy Bear Shoes

Zack....wearing his little teddy bear shoes...look at those short little legs and huge feet :D His baby head is so big he wears size 6-9 months shirts so they'll slip over his head, but he has a teeny weeny little bottom, and wears newborn and they're loose and the legs are too long!

I made a few more book purses, and I'm working on some more this week.

A Roget's Thesaurus with thrift store handles and a vintage paisley shaped rhinestone button clasp. It has a cute paisley lining, and I love how everything matches no nicely.

I took a break from purses one day and made a bracelet I saw on CraftBits. I love it, and I'm going to try a few more. Check out their site and see all the wonderful ideas and projects that they have. A lot of inspiration there!
I had a little jar with some leftover beads in it that I wanted to make something out of; this was the perfect bracelet for them. I even have enough left to make another bracelet or two, and some earrings to match.

I decided to try it with Stretch Magic clear string.

Here's how you start off. I used 3 large beads just like CraftBits project.

This is about long enough for me.

Beautiful! And it matches so many of my clothes :D Go check out CrafttBits and get ready for Christmas by making gifts :D
